Description

This is an opportunity for your students to acknowledge the social, economical, and political accomplishments of 37 historical African Americans.

Black History Month is celebrated in both Canada and the United States during the month of February. It is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time to recognize the central role of blacks in the U.S.A. (History, 2019). Together we share and learn what we know, our experiences, and remember those who left their imprint.

In the following activity, have your students select one individual to research, gather, organize, and deliver information on. They have the opportunity to highlight 3 important facts, what they are known for, challenges faced, a quote, and one question they would love to ask them.
